    Chris wouldn't know whether or not the view did look like that since the office has no window.

    I have an interview with them lined up to 'discuss' this little matter next week.
    When you get shown an office with a window, sign all the documentation for it and then suddenly get plonked into an oversized broom cupboard they wonder why one of my forst tasks is to seek a new office. Apparently they are not to happy about this and i may get moved (hopefully), if not there are plenty more out there.

    :O:O:O The cheek of it!!! Go get them and unleash the power of the Edu-God on them as that is appalling!! The view you described to me sounded a nice view when we spoke a bit since about it but a broom cupboard is not good if you signed for a window.

    Then again I cannot complain as I have 3 windows (all side by side) in my office where as my tech used to live in a windowless office that wasn't very nice.

    DB> i assume this is Regus? They did that to me too. Shown 2nd floor office with view over a garden, and then get a smaller ground floor office with views of the bins in the alleyway (so no light)

    Correct. I'll see what they do when I give them my notice to quit at the end of the month. by all accounts they are desperate for companies to stay, and the anoyign thing is that the office they showed me is still vacant!

    Why a merely "OK" writer like JK Rowling is huge while Reeve isn't is one of the mysteries of life. His Larklight series and the prequel to "Engines", along with his revisionist take on Arthurian legend are also well worth seeking out.
    Seconded - brilliant set of books! Reading the new Fever Crumb at the mo.

    The only thing they understand is witholding payment and leaving. As a hint, the people you are dealing with are not passing any problems up the chain, you will have to contact the regional manager yourself.

    He could always invite the reginonal manager into the office for a meeting about it and leave briefly, with the door accidentally locking behind him.

    See how acceptable a room with no window is then
